From what it seems like it is quite unlikely that DARLING in the FRANXX will have a sequel, from the way the show ended. It had this sort of 'closure' feel to it. I guess they tried to leave the VIRM not dying thing because they didn't know whether they'd make a sequel but that's a pretty bad start for a sequel IMO. Unless it's set in the distant future, distant past or an AU, I don't know how they can add on much to the show's world without wrecking the first season's world-building. It'd be cool if they could have an OVA where they show more of the lives of Squad 13 doing stuff (like in the drama CDs) in Mistilteinn or after the galactic battle though!! :)
I pray that season 2 is OK
As soon as possible season 2 will come out
Oohh boy people actually want a continuation of this mess? What we need is a cleaning of the original, a remake of the plot. I think if there will be a season two, it won't be a Mecha series, but rather just a short romance drama of the two children we saw at the end recollecting their memories from their progenitors. I hope there won't be any background characters whose development will only get in the way of the main story line. I will certainly watch it if it would be like I said, otherwise I will put a shinto barrier on so it never gets into my screens.
If there is anything more in this universe, it should be a prequel. The potential lore for the FranXX universe if pretty good.
The ending reminded me of Kuromukuro where they were obviously trying to give closure, but it was so rushed. Tsuki ga Kirei had a similar ending too, but it clearly wasn't aimed at trying to set up a sequel, since it wasn't shonen.
Let me just say something, it's VERY likely that the studio that made the anime for DitF (Cloverworks and Studio Trigger) will not be making a season two. They haven't done any season two's, as far as I've heard. The site wouldn't be "dead," the manga will still carry on and likely through to 2020 or farther in the future. But, I have predictions, not answers.
I really hope Trigger still does an S2 for Little Witch Academia.
What do you think?
